Over the past year, businesses across industries and geographies grappled with a unique set of challenges. Retail CFOs managed excess inventory and the impact of the bullwhip effect, manufacturers navigated rising costs and supply chain challenges, and banking leaders embarked on ESG initiatives against the backdrop of market turbulence and record-high inflation. This complexity underscored the importance of operational agility, and business leaders were once again tested by their ability to act effectively to mitigate risks and steer their organizations towards growth.

Partners had a crucial role to play in this challenging environment, and our world-class ecosystem of global Anaplan partners stepped up to the plate.

In FY23 our partners helped businesses around the world reimagine their operations to successfully manage more disruption and change than ever before. Partners provided business leaders with strategic implementation support, industry best practices, and deep domain expertise. They helped customers get up and running quickly with Anaplan, driving faster time to value, and enabled teams to move at the speed of a rapidly shifting market. 

While I’m humbled by the work each and every one of our partners has done over the past year, I’m especially impressed by our global and regional Partner of the Year award winners who were recognized last week during our annual kick-off (AKO FY24).

This year’s winners exemplify a customer-first mentality. They have delivered outsized business value, are trusted partners to our customers, and have consistently delivered the insight and support needed to gain true operational agility.     

Please join me in congratulating our FY23 Partner of the Year award winners.
